Tahoe Today: The Law of Karma
“In both Hinduism and Buddhism, every action has consequences. When a pebble falls into a pool, it produces rings that spread throughout the whole pool. A butterfly fluttering its wings can produce a typhoon, under the right conditions.
“In the same way, our actions cause cosmic vibrations that affect not only this life but our lives to come. What we do not learn in this life must be learned in the next. Harm we cause in this life will come back to us in the next.” – From Answers.com
My search for karma led me to my belief system now; I watch what I say to people and try not to hurt them. I never judge anyone; and try very hard to give someone a chance whether I believe in what they say or not.
I also honor the good that I do. Sometimes in a reading when a mother has lost her child, I work so hard to help her. And when the child is found, I almost hear a bell go off in my head; words that say, “Dayle you have done good.”
My own personal experience with karma took place in 1980 in Tahoe. My best friend Diane taught me all about karma. We would have lengthy discussions about the subject. She was a strong believer. I was still in the questioning state. Diane believed “what goes around comes around.” I begged to differ.
Diane once said, “Someday I will be able to prove to you what karma is.” I didn’t believe it.
Diane and I were chatting at her home I needed to leave to feed my dogs. I told her I would be back in a half hour or so. On my way home, I stopped at a local store to pick up a bite to eat. As I was pulling out of the parking stall, I backed straight into another car. I remember I left a tiny dent on the other car. Since know one was around, I took off like a bat out of hell.
I then ran up to feed my dogs and was soon on my way back down the hill with groceries packed neatly in my car. When I reached Diane’s , I told her about the car I had dented and laughed about my getaway.
“See, I told you there’s no such thing as karma,” I said rather smugly.
Several chats later, Diane was beginning to believe me. It was time for me to go home. Diane walked out to the driveway with me. I started up my car and backed out of her driveway. I heard a crash. I had backed into Diane’s car, totaling out my tail light. Diane’s car was heavier than mine not a scratch on her car could be found. I got out of the car quite ashamed and very apologetic.
Diane asked, “Well do you believe in karma now?”
“Yes,” I shouted. “I believe in karma now.”
I learned a great lesson that day: Some things are real whether you choose to believe in them or not. Namaste.
